2020 has seen the world of sports thrown into disarray, with seasons suspended, and great lengths gone to to make sure they can be finished. Even though the NBA Playoffs are from over, the next instalment in the 2K franchise has kept its annual September release date, and the hype around it couldn't be higher.
As loyal fans of the gaming franchise know, the release of a new edition can come with an overwhelming amount of options, from which mode to play, to which team to choose, and how best to build a championship-winning franchise.
Of course, one of the most important aspects of the game is the players, and as a reflection of the NBA itself, a single player can make all the difference, with the potential to almost single-handedly take a team to the next level. These are the players 2K is built for, and they are easily the most exciting thing about the game.
From intriguing rookies, to the most explosive, all the way through to most talented players in the league, these are some of the athletes on 2K21 that you simply need to gravitate to first.
